Chateau Ferrière was founded in the 18th century by Gabriel Ferriere. He was a shipbroker and a King officer in charge of hunting. The vineyard was progressively enlarged by his cousin Jean, the mayor of Bordeaux in 1792.
Today, the 1855 classification has indeed a historic but also a real value, because the wines from these classified properties are exceptional and their terroirs are the greatest in the region.
"The Château Ferrière 2014 has a lovely nose that is punchy and bright: violet-tinged black fruit that are vivacious and precise. The palate is medium-bodied with a citrus fresh entry, a keen thread of acidity, good weight in the mouth with a surprisingly (for Ferrière) structured finish. There is a sense of energy here that wins you over and it should be translated into the wine post-bottling. One not to overlook as this is often keenly priced compared to its peers."
